South Wilford Endowed C of E Primary School

Spark the flame, light up the world.




At South Wilford we want our pupils to have the opportunity to take part in and explore a variety of sports whilst promoting enjoyment of physical activity and intern boost their mental health positively. By developing each child’s skill, knowledge and understanding of sports, they will know how to use their bodies effectively and maintain high levels of physical fitness. We want to embed values such as fairness, respect and sportsmanship and ensure each child has the opportunity to compete across a variety of both mixed and gender specific sports both in and out of school.


Every lesson starts with a 10-15 minute dynamic warm up that is progressive from EYFS to Year 6, in the difficulty of movements and stretches. This is so that the children are able to develop fitness, strength and flexibility according to their skill level.


Fitness progression can be seen throughout and is an embedded core skill that is worked on through the skills acquisition.


Enjoyment of physical activity is a key strand running through the PE lessons and is an important element to allow for targeted progress and development.
